Xi Jinping to meet Donald Trump in Florida on April 6-7 30.3.2017
Beijing: President Donald Trump will meet with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping for the first time on April 6-7 at Trump's Florida resort, China's foreign ministry announced Thursday, amid a range of pressing issues from trade, to North Korea and territorial claims in the South China Sea. The future relationship between the world's No. 1 and No. 2 economies has been uncertain following the election of Trump, who accused China during his campaign of unfair trade practices and threatened to raise import taxes on Chinese goods and declare Beijing a currency manipulator. It is unclear whether Trump will follow through with either threat. He is now seeking Beijing's help in pressuring North Korea over its nuclear weapons and missiles programs. China is the North's most important source of diplomatic support and economic assistance. In February, Trump reaffirmed Washington's long-standing "One China" policy in a call with Xi, in an apparent move to ease concerns in China that he might use Taiwan as leverage ...

Impact on the Supreme Court's decision to disallow sale and registration of BS-III vehicles from April 1, will not only impact the OEMs, but also the entire stakeholders, said Vinod K Dasari, managing director of Ashok Leyland and President of Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM). He said companies will find ways and means to address the challenge including looking at export markets, converting the vehicles to BS-IV, which may increase the cost by 8-10 per cent.Speaking to Business Standard, he said, the impact will be larger. It could be much larger it will hurt the supplier, auto OEMs, dealers, financiers and others. Fortunately Ashok Leyland, he said, had Plan-B in mind if something like this happens."I find it wrong. Because it's not like auto industry did not how to make Euro IV vehicles, since 2010 they have been making. The only reason why could not switch over was due to fuel availability.

Artists come from different fields and chefs easily explore their creativity with food. A Mumbai restaurant recently took up the task of making people aware about climate change through their food and it was quite amazing.       Recently, five-star restaurant Courtyard By Marriott Mumbai International Airport created ‘The Chocolate Earth”, a large spherical chocolate ball shaped like a globe. The restaurant asked guests to try their gooey desserts that were all made after scraping the globe and with every order, the earth starting coming apart. The twist was that all the guests had to post a picture on Instagram or tweet using #ReviveTheSweetEarth to stop the destruction of the chocolate earth. Every time a post came up they would recreate the destroyed part of the chocolate ball. Sadly, the numbers of social posts were lesser ...
